Black History Month is all about remembering and celebrating the great works of African Americans and their significant contributions to history. Head to the George W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum for a special art exhibit that highlights local African American artists and their significant impact to the community.

The exhibit, titled Art Past and Present: From a Black Artist's Perspective, showcases more than two dozen art pieces ranging from pencil drawings and clay sculptures to large-scale paintings, including an impressive interpretation of the Dallas skyline. The collection is comprised of pieces created by local artists, with several students at the acclaimed Booker T. Washington School of the Arts, located in Downtown Dallas, showing their masterpieces. See it for yourself! The exhibit runs through Feb. 23. 

Can't make it this month? The museum is open year-round with the exception of major holidays.  Next month's exhibit Portraits of Courage will showcase paintings from President Bush himself, recognizing members of the US military who have served our nation since 9/11.

Plan your trip to the George W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum today!
